RIM shipped a version of OS 2.0 that had not been tested by developers. Leading to all sorts of problems at launch for WebWorks developers.
Could you please make sure that developers are given a chance to test an OS before it's release to the public so that we can report on issues and implement workarounds if the reported issues cannot be fixed before general availability?

Wasn't there a developer beta available since October of last year? I believe there were at least three different builds, each one bringing a little more functionaltiy than the last one. Yes, it wasn't a full feature beta, but I thought it was at least enough for devs to test their apps against.

Indeed, there were several beta releases made available to developers and apps worked fine on those, but the released version was different and broke apps. Nobody (outside of RIM) go a chance to test that version.

We will continue to use the beta channels in the future to allow developers to test it out before it goes gold.
